Police investigating county's 70th homicide in Temple Hills

temphillshomiTEMPLE HILLS – Detectives from the Prince George's County Police Department's homicide unit are investigating the county's 70th homicide of the year that occurred early Wednesday morning in Temple Hills.

Just after 12:30 a.m. on Sept. 27, patrol units from the county police department, along with units from the county's fire department, responded to the 4000 block of Rocky Mount Drive for a report of a man shot on the sidewalk in front of a house.

According to officials on the scene, when units arrived they found an adult male, who police have identified as 20-year-old Ibrahim Kamara of the11200 block of Hannah Way in Upper Marlboro, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

“This is a very quiet neighborhood and nothing like this has ever happened around here. I guess it was a matter of time,” said Robert Long, who has lived near the scene for 30 years.

Court records show that Kamara had been arrested in the several times in the county. In August of 2016, Kamara was arrested and charged with attempted first-degree murder, first and second-degree Assault, use of a handgun in a crime, along with other charges.

Detectives do not believe this is a random act of crime and are working to identify a suspect(s) and motive in this case. A reward of up to $25,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest and indictment in this case. Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the homicide unit at 301-772-4925.
